The food was really nice, had a breakfast and my partner had eggs Benedict, we also had nachos as we was quiet hungry, strange combination but nice non the less, the service was of a good and professional standard. Was very happy and we she'll return! Thank you

Called in for what I hoped would be a spot of lunch, as the bar looked quite inviting from the outside. Once in, the furnishings were comfortable, and the armchairs in the window made a great place for watching the world go by. However, the range of draught ciders was poor, but ok if the height of your expectations is... More

Popped into here as it looked nice enough (but not too fancy), for a quick bite. Received a warm welcome and informed of all the offers available. Food was ace and whilst it was only burgers, they were not your ordinary burger- excellent sides and they looked and tasted fab!! Good selection of drinks too. The final bill was great... More

My past review of this place was challenged by the manager who claimed that "it was a one off" and "that member of staff had left it was so long ago". They challenged me to try them again. Inadvertently I found myself here as part of a large works party. Firstly, there appeared to be an issue with the toilets... More

This was a pleasant surprise in every way, and is one of my regular choices. From the outside it's a fairly typical town centre pub restaurant. Inside - better decor, friendlier staff, more comfortable, better food and sensible prices. Service is fast, staff are relaxed. I wouldn't say no to a new menu - I like their food but a... More

I'm a big fan of both Fat Cat Nottingham and Fat Cat Sherwood. We regularly eat and drink here - especially on half price day. The food is good quality, there's loads of choice and the prices are very reasonable. I am vegetarian and I have lots of options. I recently booked the function area of Fat Cat for a... More
